My first impression is A. percula. For everyone else, it would be very helpful for you to explain why it is you think it's A. ocellaris, rather than just saying it is.

To me it looks like the eye is orange, and has about 10 dorsal spines. Which from what I've heard from past ID posts signifies A. percula. The black lines aren't as defined, but doesn't that come with age? That's my thought at least.

Looks like the body shape of an ocellaris to me, and the head doesnt look like a blocky percula head.

Are we seeing the same picture here?

The eye is very much brown (not a great way to tell if you use flash, the eye will come out orange, but this one is clearly brown)

& I'm counting 8 spines unless I failed kindergarden (also not the best way to tell what kind due to them both being able to have 9 spines)
